European Starling

The European Starling was still present this morning, though the numbers of Grey-headed Lapwings were a little lower, there was still at least 279 present, possibly more but the flock was mobile repeatedly being flushed by workers.

Good numbers of other waders again present including several species not recorded a couple of days ago, with 12 Pacific Golden Plover, 89 Little Ringed Plover, 6 Greater Painted Snipe, 5 Temminck's Stint, 8 Common Sandpiper, 3 Pin-tailed Snipe, 16 Spotted Redshank, 2 Common Greenshank, 13 Marsh Sandpiper and 155 Wood Sandpipers.

Eastern Marsh Harrier by Micheal Rooney

A female Eastern Marsh Harrier was present on and off throughout the morning and a very vocal Eurasian Wryneck showed exceptionally well. A mixed flock of Baya, Asian Golden and Streaked Weaver fed in a patch of tall grass, along with at least 10 Red Avdavat.
